fruits & veggies question

Post by Lily T » Sat, 11 Jul 1998 04:00:00



Does anyone give their dog(s) fruits or vegetables as treats, and which
types?  I'd like to give her a larger variety of treats which may be
better for her health (less fatty) than just jerky beefs and IAMs
biscuits. ^_^  Thanks!

Yep! I give my dog green pepper, apple, tomato, carrot and potato.  I "de-skin"
them remove all the stones or seeds slice them up and serve them as treats or a
small meal.
He LOVES them!

My dogs eat just about any veggies and fruits.  They seem to like carrots
and apples the best, though.  All my apple cores go to the dogs.  They like
red grapes, but tend to play with them first.  My dachsie female has eaten
nectarines and peaches, but I would not recommend giving these on a regular
basis.  They like cooked or over ripe tomato.  The only thing I would
suggest staying away from is celery.  It seems to cause the same reaction as
grass.  They also love nuts.

Every day I make a large salad and while I am cutting up the veggies the
dogs are at my feet waiting for morsels. They love all veggies except
jalapenos. One even likes raw garlic! They particularly enjoy the center
ridge of romaine or similar lettuce and that is what I usually throw out but
give to them instead.

My guys get veggies on a regular basis--whatever we're having except for sauces
and butter.  And during the summer, I keep a bowl of mixed veggies in the
fridge--nice, cool  treat.  They eat whatever fruit they like--partial to red
grapes--can throw them all around and then devour them!

lots of people in the past have said frozen grapes and carrots are good
summer treats for teething pups or playful *** dogs
My dogs like Kale, Spinach, Broccoli and lots of other veggies!

Dear Lily,

Our Labs LOVE veggies!!  Broccoli stalks are their FAVORITE treat.  They eat
almost anything that is non-leafy.  We have to be careful, because onions are
not particularly good for them (and they'll eat these all day), but most of
our vegetables go to them.

Be careful not to give fruit with large pits, like peaches, because they may
wolf down the seed and have internal blockage from them.  Consult you vet as
well, but ours recommends letting them have as much of most veggies as they
want.

Our Westie, Miss Molly, likes cauliflower, blueberries, grapes, and
melon.  We stay away from carrots, which are supposedly harder to
digest.  Our vet says that a bit of roughage of this kind is fine.  It
was funny to watch her the first time with a blueberry or grape, since
she had to puncture it to get the taste.  But once she caught on, all
was fine.

My dog charles loves raw carrots. I peel them and wash them then cut the
carrot(s) lengthwise into strips. I usually get 4 to 6 strips from one
carrot. Charles will do anything for a raw carrot. He likes them more than
his dog biscuits.

I just checked out the consumer report page concerning dry dog foods and couldn't
get in. If anyone has this info please post it. I was looking for the retraction
concerning Ole Roy Dog Food.
